Our kind and competent dental professionals are ready to serve you!



Dr. Brian T. Jones, D.M.D
Board Certified Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Brian returned to his hometown of Greenville to practice dentistry in 2008. After practicing locally for several years, he had a vision for a new space that would allow his team to meet the needs of patients even better. In 2015 he custom designed and opened a new office for Upstate Pediatric Dentistry in Verdae, complete with floor-to-ceiling murals with a Greenville theme and a wide-open bay where kids can have fun and feel relaxed.

Since he was a college student at Winthrop University, Dr. Brian has known that he has wanted to practice children’s dentistry. At Winthrop, Dr. Brian received his B.S. in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. In dental school at the Medical University of South Carolina, he received the Pre-doctoral Student Award for Outstanding Promise in the Field of Pediatric Dentistry and served on the Board of Trustees for the American Student Dental Association as the elected representative for five southeastern dental schools. Later he returned to MUSC for a two-year specialization program in pediatric dentistry, during which Dr. Brian received advanced training in providing comprehensive dental care for infants, children, teenagers, and children with special needs. His residency training also included growth and development, conscious sedation, and hospital dentistry.

Dr. Brian is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. He is a member of the ADA (American Dental Association), AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry), SSPD (Southeast Society of Pediatric Dentistry), SCDA (South Carolina Dental Association), SCSPD (South Carolina Society of Pediatric Dentistry) and the Greenville County Dental Society. He has served as a volunteer Adjunct Faculty Member at MUSC teaching fourth-year dental students the best techniques for treating pediatric patients. Dr. Brian has also enjoyed providing dental care in impoverished communities on trips to Haiti, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic.

Dr. Brian's training in child psychology and experience working exclusively with children enables him to determine the best approach to caring for each patient. He believes the dentist’s office can be a fun place to visit and hopes that every child leaves looking forward to his or her next appointment. He understands that parents play an integral role in their children’s health and always invites them to be present during any procedure.

Dr. Brian lives in Greenville with his wife, three daughters, and son—all born within four years. He enjoys being outdoors, trying new restaurants, and (closely) following Clemson football. He’s still trying to teach any one of his four children to throw a ball or ride a bike.



Dr. Neena Bhole, D.M.D.
Board Certified Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Neena grew up in Georgia and stayed there for college at UGA and for dental school at the Dental College of Georgia. After graduating from dental school she moved to Chicago to complete her specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry.  She is a diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.  After residency, Dr. Neena enjoyed living and working in Chicago.

Coming from a large family with ten younger siblings, Dr. Neena knew early on that she was meant to work with children. She loves how pediatric dentistry allows her to get to know her patients and their families by seeing them regularly over the years. She enjoys working with children from different backgrounds and learning about the things that make them feel comfortable in what can be an otherwise scary environment.

In 2019, eight years after moving to Chicago, she and her husband decided it was time to move back south to raise their daughter, enjoy the warm weather, and to finally give their dog the yard he always wanted.  She’s excited to be close to family again and to explore Greenville, her new home!
